Historical perspective

Historical Perspective

By the mid 1990s several challenges were facing the Jewish community with regard to services for older adults.

AJFCA & IAJVS 2007 ANNUAL CONFERENCE


Challenges jewish nursing home

Challenges: Jewish Nursing Home

Borman Hall – a licensed Home for the Aged

  • No longer in the heart of the Jewish community

  • Poor state inspections

  • Fiscal drain on the Federation

AJFCA & IAJVS 2007 ANNUAL CONFERENCE


Challenges an aging population

Challenges: An Aging Population

  • In the mid 1980s, 1 in 100 Michigan residents was over 85.

  • 1990-2000 – more than a 30% increase in residents over 85 y.o.

  • Services would need to adapt to serve an older, frailer population.

AJFCA & IAJVS 2007 ANNUAL CONFERENCE


Eldercare options committee

Eldercare Options Committee

  • Create a vision for caring for older adults

  • Develop a long-term strategy for the community’s delivery of eldercare services

  • Address the problems at Borman Hall and long term care institutional needs

  • Determine community-based care options with the goal of helping older Jewish adults to age in place

AJFCA & IAJVS 2007 ANNUAL CONFERENCE


Gaps in array of service

Gaps in Array of Service

  • Dementia specific Adult Day Care

  • In-home support services

  • Centralized information, referral and access to services

  • Affordable housing

  • Services for older adults with lifelong disabilities

  • Wellness, health prevention programs and access to primary health care

  • Transportation

AJFCA & IAJVS 2007 ANNUAL CONFERENCE


Recommendation get out of the nursing home business

Recommendation: Get out of the Nursing Home Business

  • Find a qualified operator to serve as a preferred provider

  • Transfer residents to facilities that served kosher food

  • Make Jewish Home and Aging Services responsible for ensuring that these homes operate “Jewishly”

It was clear that Federation needed to convince the community that it was not turning its back on the Jewish frail elderly.

AJFCA & IAJVS 2007 ANNUAL CONFERENCE


Recommendation create central planning and coordinating authority

Recommendation: Create Central Planning and Coordinating Authority

  • In the fall of 1996 COJES was formed as a consortium of the partner Federation agencies servicing older Jewish adults.

  • Organized as a function of the Federation, as part of the Planning Department

  • Comprised of lay leaders and professional staff of each Federation agency and community members at-large

AJFCA & IAJVS 2007 ANNUAL CONFERENCE

AJFCA & IAJVS 2007 ANNUAL CONFERENCE


Meeting the challenge improve collaboration

Meeting the Challenge:Improve Collaboration

COJES, along with the Agency Execs Task Force on Aging, has repeatedly looked for ways to enhance services and efficiency:

  • Examine the best use of existing resources

  • Examine if a program or service lends itself to collaboration

  • Not all services need to be provided by the Jewish community -- no need to duplicate what exists in the general community.

AJFCA & IAJVS 2007 ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Eldercare Services Structure

The diagram above refers to services that could perhaps be consolidated. In addition, there still needs to be a discussion of other services that could potentially be consolidated such as food services and Holocaust survivor services. A decision was made to continue to coordinate volunteer services, but not to consolidate them into one agency due to the nature of volunteerism and the agency/volunteer relationship.
